U.S. and North Korean negotiators reportedly broke off high-level nuclear talks after months of negotiations between the two countries.
Reuters reported Saturday that North Korea’s top official present for negotiations with the U.S. told reporters that the U.S. had brought nothing to the table for the latest round of talks.
“The negotiations have not fulfilled our expectation and finally broke off,” Kim Myong Gil said.
“The U.S. raised expectations by offering suggestions like a flexible approach, new method and creative solutions, but they have disappointed us greatly and dampened our enthusiasm for negotiation by bringing nothing to the negotiation table,” he added, according to Reuters.
A request for comment Saturday to the State Department was not immediately returned. The halt in negotiations come a month after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited President Trump to Pyongyang, the first time such an invitation was extended to a U.S. president.
In early August, Trump told reporters that he thought another meeting with Kim was possible, but U.S. officials have not yet announced plans for a third summit between the two leaders.
